A Praying Woman

There are so many things I loved about the life of Harriet Tubman. 

I love reading about her life, her strength, her courage, and her love and faithfulness to God. From the many articles and books I've read about her, she was a prophet sent by God to free His people. Henceforth, her nickname was Moses. She was also illiterate, which means she couldn't read or write. And like most people used mightily by God, she had a rough go at it before she started her ministry of setting the captives free in the name of Jesus, the Most High.

Yet among her many amazing feats of freeing about 300 slaves, she was in constant communication with God. And the one thing that is clear is that she prayed -- she spoke to Him often and He spoke back to her with clear directions about how she was to go about freeing slaves, in which she never lost one or was ever captured. Utterly amazing. But that's our awesome God.

I say all of that to say that if she wasn't a praying woman who had a relationship with God she would have not been successful at all. Harriet Tubman, a fascinating hero I love referencing and a remarkable case study about the power of a great relationship with God. That's what praying does and it doesn't matter who it is, God will speak and when we listen He will direct our paths (Proverbs 3:5/6) and His will, will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

I feel free

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. How are you feeling today? What kind of head space have you been in lately? I ask, because I'm just wondering if anybody feels like me -- free like me. Free as an eagle. Free as can be. That's right, out with doing business the old stale way and in with a fresh new operation. It's a shifting happening in the atmosphere of Sharon's life and I'm moving on to the big and awesome things God has for me. What  do you say for yourself? What are you speaking over your life? What it is for you?  For me, I am no longer afraid to go out in the deep end. I am no longer afraid to fly higher, I am no longer concerned about what I have or do not have, and I am no longer concerned about what anybody thinks or says. Who the heck cares anymore? I don't. Because God tells me he doesn't give me a spirit of fear or timidity ( 2 Timothy 1 :7) , but He gives me a spirit of love, confidence, power, self-control, and

Protecting My Peace - Day 98 - Momentum and Movement, That’s What's Up

Click to listen to current podcast episode. “Never Giving Up” are power-words — strong affirmations that give us momentum and movement. That’s what’s up. We can do so much more in our lives when we have momentum and movement. It’s about standing, literally and not sitting or laying around feeling sorry for ourselves. I used to do that once upon a time and that sorrowful thinking is for the birds. We don’t have to be down. We can get up and get going even if we start small. In fact, I love starting small, because it helps set a firm foundation of habits and routines. Momentum and movement will help us get and maintain a position of strength to do what God says we can do.

God blesses whomever he wants to bless, whenever he wants to bless them

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. When I was going through a dark time -- when I had nothing -- there was a certain person who helped me sometimes. She helped me whenever she basically felt like it, but she did help, and for that I'm appreciative. But, something interesting happened after I started growing out of my despair. Something interesting started happening when I no longer needed her for anything. And something interesting happened even though I remained kind and grateful towards. The interesting thing that happened was that she started hating on me. She started treating me differently. At first I was really bothered by it, because I thought she and her husband were nice people I wanted in my life. I liked that they had a sense of compassion and were interested in helping people who were down and low. That really appealed to me, because I was raised that way; my mother was raised that way; her mother was raised that way, and it goes back to as fa
